New Take on L-O-V-E

Vose Elementary is a school that is being rebuilt in the growing Beaverton SD, and they asked me to work with the students to bring in a little Love to the school sign. Wow, did they do a good job on this one! That’s 6 feet in each direction.FullSizeRender

Studio Classes- Mandalas and Emojis

This was a fun and creative two week session of studio classes. Everyone loves making a Mandala because the design is so expressive and so complete. And the Emoji class was full of simple designs taken from internet emojis and filled with amazing mosaic details.mandala

Can you believe that Portland got 14 inches of snow?!  I’m so glad my garden mosaics can pass that test.

Chapel in the Woods

Here is a view of our mosaic at the Grotto in Portland. We have installed two smalti mosaic panels, and they will be blessed by Catholic priests on Oct 29 at 3 pm. We are expecting big crowds and, well a little rain. But the Lady will be shining in the house.
Artists: Mark Brody and Hector Hernandez

Guadalupe- Panel 2

On a very wet day, we took the 2nd panel out of the studio to see it in the light! All the glorious golds shine in the cloudy daylight. It’s only half the size of the large main panel.  Title: Miracle of the Roses.  We’re ready for installation next week!

The Miracle of Roses

Here is a sample of the roses that I will be placing in the Virgin of Guadalupe install at the Portland Grotto. It is one of maybe 20 roses that will be in two different panels. Doing this traditional style of smalti mosaic has been a revelation for me!!Roses
